source-sink relationships between plants shows that sinks (fruit) cannot produce high yields when the source (roots/leaves) capacity is limited ( Venkateswarlu and Visperas, 1987 ). It has been further reported that fully grown leaves become the source

( Schmulling et al., 1988 ; Zuker et al., 2001 ). In addition to the cytokinin-like action, it has been suggested that rol C may be influencing the source–sink relationship by regulating sugar metabolism and transport ( Veena and Taylor, 2007 ). Further

, 1992 ). Seasonal source–sink relationships between vegetative and reproductive growth also influence leaf N status; for example, developing fruits during the summer act as an N sink ( Fletcher et al., 2009 ). While it is known that increasing N supply
